Title: Evaluation of fire and explosion hazard of nanoparticles / Nabila Nazneen, Qingsheng Wang
Author: Nazneen, Nabila
Publication: Quincy : The Fire Protection Research Foundation, 2019
Notes: Sumario: The NFPA Dust standards need a common definition for a nanoparticle, an understanding of how their combustion properties differ from larger particles, and an awareness of the effect on the selection and application of fire and explosion prevention, detection, and suppression methods. Are there significant differences in the combustion characteristics between nanoparticles and larger particles that would significantly affect fire and explosion prevention, detection, and suppression methods and are these differences present for all commodity dusts? What numerical size criterion should be used to distinguish a nanoparticle from larger particles from the standpoint of fire and explosion safety principles?
